To Love Alone

Is it so bad to love alone?
with two arms
and not four
with one beating heart
and not two.

Wrapping my two arms around myself
clutching a pillow at night
shivering in the cold.

Is it so bad to love alone?
When in the morning
I'll have but two memories
an old one with you
and a new one without.

Both with equal primacy.

Both as real in the primordial volatility of the universe.

Both alive in my mind
until my my mind is no longer alive
and love no longer has any meaning at all.
